First time going here and what a beautiful village - we went to the wine area and bought wine / went to the deli pasta area and bought pasta and fresh sauce / went to the bakery and bought pastries and then got some delicious gelato too and this is all before dinner - so much to do and get and choose from . It truly is a village . From there we went to dinner at their cafe . Silvio the GM was a total delight so kind and sociable . We went to dinner / show to see LIME perform who were AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG! what a show . So the dinner had a pre fixe and it was fair the food but we got a table / show and we were able to stay at the table for 4 + hours and enjoy dinner and the show w no rush . The music ( DJ) before hand was incredible as was the energy . We danced sang laughed then ate then saw a GREAT show ! So worth the long drive to go here

Great, delicious food always.
I guess with the shortage of 'help' everywhere we need to be patient.

The waitress did not know the menu items. We waited one hour for meal and when we asked our server she there’s a big party, you will have to wait. The food was bland, mediocre and certainly not worth the cost. We waited 30 minutes for our check. So many restaurants post COVID are returning to business with great service, good food and awesome atmosphere, the staff at Calandras didn’t even try. We won’t return

They automatically add a 20% tip to your check. The servers don’t have an incentive to provide good service because of this. The service was absolutely horrible and this will be the last time I visit this establishment.

Food comment based on the pizza. If you’re looking for a crisp pizza this should not be your go to place. Will go back to sample other menu items.

The whole experience was wonderful. The server was not as attentive as we needed them to be. If not for that it would’ve been 10/10. The food was delicious and the portions were great. Dessert could’ve been a little better but overall food was something to come back to the restaurant for indeed.

It was an Easter dinner gone wrong. For the amount of money this cost I would never do it again. Food was bland, poorly executed, and the desserts were not the usual Calandra hits. This was a miss.

Making a reservation was great atmosphere and spacing was very good . We had looked at your lunch/dinner menu on line before we made our reservation and had decided on what we would have . When we arrived we were told that the web site menu hasn’t been updated and the meal we thought we would order wasn’t available . That caused some disappointment.

First time my wife daughter(3) and I ate at this location. We were looking for a place still doing outdoor dining because of covid. It was very well set up and the food was very good. Get the Arancini appetizer.

Calandra’s has really stepped up to the pandemic. They have almost if not the same seats outside as inside. In looking inside it’s probably the only restaurant I have seen following the rules that I would actually feel comfortable eating inside. Food was good portions were very nice sized. Can get a little pricey when having drinks.
